Review summary

It was a nice cruise. Sailing from Baltimore was convenient although it took us a day longer to get out of the bay due to weather. As our first Royal Caribbean cruise, I'd rate it much better than Carnival for what we like but not as nice as Celebrity.


5 out of 5
This was our last cruise before the pandemic. We paid extra for "The Key" and it was worth the cost. Priority boarding and the extras.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
The service and staff were very nice but for us, it always seems to come back to a comparison with Celebrity. Just didn't have the "little things" we always appreciate about Celebrity.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin (sorry, don't remember the number) was clean and we'll maintained but it was the first time we tried an inside cabin and I'm rating it 3 stars because it just wasn't for us. We'd much prefer to be able to see outside and open a balcony door.

Again, we purchased "The Key" so we had priority disembarkation. Very smooth and well worth the cost.
